The American Dental Association (ADA) today announced that the PRO-SYS® VarioSonic® Powerbrush receives its ADA Seal of Acceptance.
The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs accepted the power toothbrush based on the finding that the product is safe and effective in removing plaque and helping to prevent and reduce gingivitis when used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
The VarioSonic features five speeds and includes five easy-to-change brush heads, each with a different stiffness. All brush heads use innovative DuPont™ Tynex® bristles, precision manufactured to the highest standards. The Normal Soft brush head is ideal for healthy mouths, and four other levels of softness cater to patients with sensitivity. The five speeds and five brush heads included with the VarioSonic offer 25 possible settings. The VarioSonic presents extra-long battery life -- more than one month under normal use.
To earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance, the products’ designer, Benco Dental, had to pass ADA Laboratory tests and meet ADA and American National Standards Institute-approved dental standards.
“The range of speeds and bristle stiffness ensure that anyone can find just the right combination,” said Benco Dental Managing Director Rick Cohen. “This is a brush for all: people with healthy mouths, but also people with sensitive gums and periodontal issues.”
